Now white elephant of Rajasthan

Dear Editor,

It refers to Rajya Sabha Secretariat inviting suggestions from members of public on ‘The Rajya Sabha Legislative Council Bill, 2013’ as introduced in the Rajya Sabha on 06.08.2013 for establishing a 66-members Legislative Council for Rajasthan as per resolution passed by Rajasthan Legislative Assembly on 18.04.2012.

‘White-elephant’ bodies of legislative system in form of ‘Vidhhan Parishads’ (Legislative Councils) were rightly abolished in many states after post-emergency scenario of the year 1977 with just five states remaining with Legislative Councils. But many states have restored Legislative Councils just for rehabilitation of family-members and other favourites of political rulers including several rejected ones of general elections to be employed at public-expense through Legislative Councils which have no other practical utility except to provide an expensive feather on caps of those elected. Ruling parties in states often manipulate winning of its candidates in elections to Vidhan Parishads by misuse of power.

Rather than adding Legislative Councils to more states including now in Rajasthan, constitutional provision of having Vidhan Parishads (Legislative Councils) in states should be altogether abolished.
